Police said it was one of the suspected illegals who led them to the house at 75th Avenue and Indian School Road.

Officers and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents raided the home Monday night. They discovered six suspected illegal immigrants, including one child.

Those people were being held against their will in exchange for money. None of them was hurt.

Investigators said somebody inside the house tipped them off when he called his sister Monday morning and told her that he was being for ransom. Police were able to track the call to the home.

Three alleged coyotes were also taken into custody.
